If you’re going to Portland Oregon and have time to grab lunch, AND you crave old American classics, you have to try Hungry Tiger Too. Thursday I had lunch with three groovy gals: Fran Costigan @goodcakesfran, JL Fields @jlgoesvegan, and Kristen Davenport @inmypies.
We totally pigged out on all the good stuff. Although it would be hard to imagine anything on the menu that sucked :-)
Yours truly ordered a Bloody Marry (menu spelling), sweet potato fries, and biscuits and gravy. All three are items I’ve not yet been wowed by at any restaurant.
I hadn’t found a robust vegan gravy until Hungry Tiger. Seriously, their gravy has a lot of herbs, making it nice and rich.
These sweet potato fries set the standard for all sweet potato fries. Thin, crisp and yummy. They are soooo not soggy, you won’t need to use a spoon.
I highly recommend making time to visit Hungry Tiger Too on your next trip to Portland. We were content kittens when they got done with us.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m feeling like I need to go back to Portland just to try all the restaurants and food carts I’ve been reading about in blog posts. Three days of nothing but eating, and taking photos of course. Hungry Tiger Too, Home Grown Smoker, Native Bowl, etc. etc. What was I thinking not showing up until Friday. Tsk.

Have you been watching all the photos Home Grown Smoker is posting on Facebook? They’re such teases. I tried to score some of those oreos on the Monday following the conference and evidently, the conference wiped them out.
